The mission of the British Columbia Ground Water Association is to provide professional and technical leadership in the advancement of the ground water industry and in the protection, the promotion, and the responsible development and use of ground water resources.
This guide is designed for all agricultural producers – from ranchers to greenhouse growers to hobby farmers. The stewardship principles discussed here will enable farmers to improve their operations and enhance the quality of their local environment at the same time.

The Partnership Committee supports a growing and developing agriculture industry that is environmentally and economically sustainable
InfoBasket is your -one-stop centre for agriculture information. It is organized into areas of interest called COMMUNITIES such as apriculture, dairy, beef or poultry.
Sustainable Agriculture Management Branch Publications List : Water Section – BC Ministry of Agriculture
The Sustainable Agriculture Management Branch of the BC Ministry of Agriculture has an extensive listing of valuable information on agriculture and water topics in factsheet and book form (manuals, handbooks, guides).
The primary purpose of this Guide is to provide irrigation professionals and consultants with a methodology to assess the irrigation system performance and manage the system effectively.
Trickle, or drip, irrigation is a form of microirrigation. The term microirrigation is often used to describe the frequent, low pressure application of water to a crop. This manual provides guidance on the design and operation of trickle irrigation systems for British Columbia conditions and crops.
The manual provides information for designing agricultural irrigation systems in British Columbia. Designing an efficient irrigation system requires a good understanding of soil, crop and moisture relationships. The effects of soil type, crop rooting depth, and climate are important when considering irrigation system application rates and set times.
Two guides for Drip and Sprinkler irrigation provide additional information on the parameters used in the Landscape Irrigation Scheduling Calculator.
Irrigation systems must be designed and operated to supply the turf and landscape water requirement while minimizing runoff and leaching. To ensure peak irrigation system performance, the system must be designed to take into account evapotranspiration, landscape coefficients, soil type and irrigation system efficiencies.
